This week has been a very hectic one.
Basically any day before Tax day on Tuesday was INSANE. By 3pm on 4/15, my office looked like a bomb had exploded and there were paper and envelopes and tax return forms everywhere on the floor and all over my desk. Right after I finished up with taxes, I jetted over to San Francisco to my furniture vendors to pick up some inventory.
Then off to leadership meeting with the lovely ladies at pow.wow women’s network and had some fantastic networking time afterwards at Candy Bar. (LOVE their desserts! You should definitely try: Chevre Cheesecake coconut sorbet / nicoise olive caramel, Blood Orange Baked Alaska candied fennel / honey comb. May I just say that Fourme D’Ambert Panna Cotta caramel dates / cinnamon toast is a must on my list from now on. I have never had cheese panna cotta, but it worked so divinely with the caramel & cinnamon toast.)
Wednesday I staged #1106, 88 King Street, San Francisco. Very beautiful building with great finishes and awesome outdoor spaces & pool. It also is situated right across the street from the AT&T ball park. I didn’t realize Wednesday was game day until I got there and seeing all these Giants fans down the street. Game day parking made the job that much more interesting — me and my assistant spent 1 hour to re-park our cars. We actually spent most time loading and unloading, shuttling stuff through the 2 towers and looking for parking than the actual staging time! Moments like circling around for 45 minutes for parking, or paying $3 for 1 hour meter parking really make me feel blessed I now live in peninsula where we have ample parking without the worrying about meter maids.
Here is a preview of what we did on Wednesday, more before & after will come later:
Afterward I had a really fun meeting for planning RE BarCamp with Brad Coy of San Francisco Real Estate Services, Eric Bryant of Geek Estate Blog, RE Coach, Staycee G. of Green Valley Prudential, Pat Kitano of Transparent RE blog. It was really a great and exciting time to talk about social media, real estate. (Staycee, if you are reading this, you SO have to come to BarCamp now!)
RE Bar Camp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees. Visit the wiki for more information.
Today, was a rather insane day. I staged 1.5 houses for HGTV (why 1.5? Long story, that’s another blog ).
Overall it went well, but I completely spaced out and forgot my camera. It was stressful but colorful and interesting. Hey, I am just always happy to be staging. I will post more before & afters soon!
